The City of St. Louis offers a wide range of convenient payment options. Choose the method that works best for you. Please note that payments must be received by 4 p.m. on the applicable due date to avoid penalty.

Online Payment

You may pay your bill using a debit or credit card and/or view account history and activity. For Utilities this is only available for active accounts. Any inactive accounts for former residents or tenants will need to be paid by mail using the invoice provided or in person. For Taxes, only the most recent levy year for real property is available for online payment. Once the tax roll is sent to the County Treasurer, you must make arrangements to pay through that office.  Please Note that Credit/Debit Card processing is provided by a third party vendor that changes a convenience fee of 1.5% to 3%.

Automatic Check Withdrawal

(Available for Utility Bills*)

Automatically pay your utility bill directly from your bank account. Payment is deducted from your bank account on or after the 8th of the month. After signing up for this payment option, you will still receive a monthly utility statement.

Complete and submit the application by following the instructions provided on the form. Your account must be in current status to sign up. For security reasons, please do not email your application or voided check.

*Please note that this option is not available for Bethany Township Customers.
